Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Lemon & Pistachios

You know, in the back of my head somewhere in my subconscious I knew this wasn’t an original idea. But I swear that part of me had thought perhaps I imagined it or dreamed it up one night while hopped up on NyQuil or something.

But no, it wasn’t so. It was this recipe I stumbled across and when I saw mention of separating the Brussels sprouts leaves from the core I instantly recalled where I’d had them before. The Gourmet Housewife. Of course!

So here’s credit where credit is due. I remember snacking on these tasty tender leaves cold one night at her place. And for imprinting that memory firmly in my brain, Jacquelyn definitely deserves full credit. (By the way, this is the second Brussels sprouts recipe that I’ve gotten from her. You should really try the Balsamic Brussels Sprouts too.)

And now on to the recipe.

    LOVED this!!!! Well worth the time involved. I had it two days later cold and it was still great. Can’t wait to try the Balsamic Brussels Sprouts – probably this weekend!
